victory for obama, that's the future of the democratic party and future of america. if the republican party wants to succeed again at the national level, they will have to make inroads to the groups. and here's president obama saying not only did i campaign on these groups but now it's time for me to deliver on these groups. and if they don't meet that challenge -- begin to meet that challenge in some way, all of these groups could be lost to them permanently. >> now, last night on the show, i talked about how there was good reviews, but i didn't think it would last. and before i could get out of the studio, they started -- the republicans -- taking shots. let me show you where respective paul ryan responded to the president's takers comment at the inaugural address. >> no one is suggesting that our earned entitlements like payroll taxes for medicare and social security are putting u yo in a taker category. when the president does kind of a switcheroo like that, what he's trying to do is we are maligning these programs. so it's kind of a convenient twist of terms to try and shadow box

't think it's a tea party necessarily that president obama or anyone who wants to get something done needs to worry about. i actually think that the problem is more on the left. they are going to want more than they are going to be able to get. the opportunity right now would be to call senator marco rubio in florida. if you look at their two proposals, they are not that far apart. if you wanted to solve this problem for the purpose of economic growth, more border security and to do what president obama wants, which i don't think is not -- he is not the only one who wants to provide to provide assurance younger people by parents if they were brought here illegally. i think if they were to bring in marco rubio they would get something nonpartisan done. other aren't that budget, i don't think there is a lot through this congress. they haven't passed a new budget in four years. a lot of new faces in washington as well especially on the senate side. >> shepard: sure. the polls suggest that the american people have moved a lot on gun control, at least since the tragedy at newtown. i'm wondering

that barack obama has been, not only for the country, but for the democratic party. johnathan's point, joe biden was an early rival, who he said very inopportune statements about him. he is super excited if he is confirmed to take on this role. it is a different kind of democratic leadership. people who follow the democratic party on its ups and many downs remember how many other rivals and nominees have been left on the side of the road. and left, really to be seen as somehow an embarrassment, even if they stood for good things, al gore for many years, michael dukakis, and it goes to barack obama's strength, taking people, building them back up. it is good not only for the party but for the country. >> we're going to take a break, every president, their first presidential decision actually happens before they're elected. that is their choice of vice presidential running mate. when i saw what was to become president obama make that decision, knowing joe biden, i was so impressed by the quality of that decision. we have to take a break, we'll talk more on the dancing, there is an evolution,

with their coalition's most extreme elements or cause a rift in the party that will leave it at least temporarily in disarray. >> wait a minute, we should have one party and follow one person, no need for opposition voices. obama rules period. reaction? >> when i read the piece online, i tweeted a link to it because i thought, it was an extraordinary statement. i know john dickerson, known him for a while the typical kind of person you find in the media, very nice fella, good man, but he is so blindly-- this article should scare anybody who has any doubts whatsoever about the media's impartiality. he's a news director for cbs news and writes a piece he essentially calls for an anti-democratic action. delegitimize the opposition. this is a country that needs and deserves to have two great political parties against each other and one in the majority and one as the loyal opposition, he doesn't believe that. he believes obama ought to delegitimize and it's one thing if he says this is what the president is attempting to do and what i think his strategy is. but this is his advice to the president. and
. >> that's sort of the administration beyond the party. e.j. >> what you are seeing from obama is someone who is willing now to say right up front this is what i want, and then let's deal. there's a lot of talk that the assault weapons ban can't get enough votes. he didn't say i should take that out of my plan as a concession to the other side. i want to put it in there, and let's negotiate it. maybe if i can't get that, i'll get everything else. the other point is he -- during the campaign in 2008, it may have been as early as 2007, he liked comparing himself to railroad. what's significant about what michael said is reagan wasn't just a guy who had eight years in mind. he wanted to build a long conservative ascend yancey, and what obama has in mind is i won't get everything done in these four years. i may have a republican house the entire time, but i can begin to build a movement and support for a set of ideas the way ronald reagan did so we can have more victories down the line. >> that's what keeps michael steel up at night. we have to leave it there for now. this is a live look at t

party and -- so i think that efforts like the occupy movement are very important in terms of -- barack obama would understand, as a former career organizer, you do not get noticed, especially if you're poor and disadvantaged, unless you do something to bring attention to the issues that are important. tavis: i agree with everything you said except for one. when dr. king did pushed the wrong button for lyndon johnson, you heard the tapes. you are doing the work on the papers project. johnson had some nasty things to say about martin king on those tapes. once johnson pushed those bonds, other black leaders came out publicly against martin. even if martin tried mightily not to take a public stance, at some point he would have felt compelled to do so. once he had done so, were he still around today, then what is the response going to be? >> i think you have to expect that those in power do not like people who speak truth to power. they would rather have flexibility that comes not out -- from not having strong grass- roots movements pushing them to do whatever things it wanted to. i think t
